Mass Cultural Council is pleased to announce that it has successfully distributed a $30,000 donation received from the GKV Foundation intended to provide financial relief to theater professionals living in Berkshire County who have lost income as a direct result of COVID-19 related cancellations and closures. The Agency is grateful to Shakespeare & Company for connecting us to the GKV Foundation, as their introduction enabled this initiative to occur.
The Foundation’s generosity supported thirty (30) grants of $1,000 each to eligible theater professionals in the Berkshires.
Mass Cultural Council is able to accept additional donations to our COVID-19 Relief Fund for Individuals. Additional funds will allow us to make $1,000 awards to those who previously applied but have not yet received funding.
Recent events have fomented a growing movement for racial equity and justice. Mass Cultural Council is taking this moment in time to embark on a restart and refocus of our work as it relates to racial equity, and we want to hear from you.
From Artist News to Creative Youth, Community Initiative, and Power of Culture, our email lists are a great way to keep up with the work of Mass Cultural Council and its partners across the Commonwealth.
